Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors are a volunteer organization, initiated in 1996. The purpose of the organization is to assist the members of the Admissions staff in their efforts to bring new students to Richmond. This includes guiding tours of campus, phoning and e-mailing prospective students, as well as working along side Admissions Representatives.

Participating in Student Ambassadors allows students to meet new people while learning about the university, as well as giving them the opportunity to improve their communication, teamwork, and presentation skills.

What We Do

Student Ambassadors are involved in a number of different events and activities, all of which are designed for you to learn more about the University, the students, and life in Richmond and London.

Below is a list of everything we do to make your choice and transition easier. You are encouraged to take advantage of as many as you like:

Campus Tours
Tours are a great way to see the campus, including classrooms, dining facilities, and common areas. You’ll also have the chance to look at a room, should you consider opting to live on-campus. Tours are usually given for the Richmond Hill campus, although Kensington tours are also available.

To learn more about Campus Tours and register, please go to the Visit Richmond section of the website

Share Meals
If you arrive near a meal time, you may wish to dine with one of our Student Ambassadors. Shared meals are a great way for you to learn more about the University from a student’s perspective and get a taste of what Richmond has to offer.

Class Visits
One of Richmond’s greatest assets are the small class sizes, the excellent faculty, and challenging course work. To experience this yourself, you may opt to sit in on a class that interests you and corresponds with your planned major. A Student Ambassador will take you to the class, pick you up again, and may even sit in on the class as well. Class visits must be arranged with the admissions office in advance. Course selected will depend on prospect’s interests, class timings, and faculty’s consent.

Getting in Touch
Starting or transferring to a new University is not always easy. There are many questions and Student Ambassadors are there to give answers about student life and classes at Richmond. They can answer almost anything- from their favourite part of London to what to pack. Student Ambassadors may contact students by email or phone. If you would like to get in touch with a Student Ambassador, please email

Open Days
Open Days are a great opportunity to visit the campus, meet faculty, and talk to current students. You will also get a chance to meet potential classmates and learn more about the University. A typical Open Day schedule will include a faculty welcome and presentation, campus tour, student panel, and President’s reception. Open Days are held once in each term – Fall, Spring, and Summer.

To learn more about Open Days and register, please go to the Visit Richmond section of the website.
